I represent clients in all aspects of litigation; I listen to client concerns, think creatively and communicate openly about their options, and then work aggressively to resolve those concerns. I use my experience as a clerk for a federal judge as well as my time at the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York to help guide my clients through the litigation process. As a federal judicial law clerk I learned how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of legal arguments, research complex issues, argue persuasively in a courtroom, write clearly and succinctly, draft complex memoranda, and I gained invaluable insight into judicial decision-making. While at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, I participated in all aspects of trial preparations, engaged in trial strategy discussions, participated in all aspects of the trials themselves, and even testified several times as a summary-fact witness in federal court.
Since joining the firm, I constantly draw on all of these experiences to think strategically and thoroughly as I draft pleadings, discovery requests and responses, motions to compel, motions to dismiss, and motions for summary judgment and as I prepare for arbitrations. These experiences and my work ethic allow me to effectively advocate for my clients.
